Undergraduate Researchers

I work with several amazing undergraduates who help me out and cary out their own research in the lab every semester. Thanks to their amazing hard work, we are learning so much about how corals respond under projected global change!


Check out all the amazing presentations Bailey, Liz, Jess, and Kyle gave recently at UNC’s Celebration of Undergraduate Research in 2019 and at Symbiofest 2019 in Athens, GA! Way to go team!
